Here’s a scary yet brilliant casting move by Hawaii 5-0 for its Halloween episode: The islanders are about to get a visit from Freddy Krueger!

EW has learned exclusively that Robert Englund, a cult favorite best known for his wildly successful run in the Nightmare on Elm Street series, will play a homeless desert storm veteran who hangs around an ancient burial site and becomes a suspect in a murder investigation.

Englund’s other recent TV appearances have included spots on Supernatural, Chuck and Bones. He last donned the razor-sharp knife hand and disfigured face in 2003.

5-0’s second season is shaping up to be a big one in terms of intriguing guest stars. Besides a multi-episode arc with Terry O’Quinn, the drama booked Tom Sizemore for an arc and just lured another Lost star to the mix. NCIS: LA‘s Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah) will also appear in an upcoming episode of the show’s second season.

    Here’s another nail in the coffin for NBC’s The Playboy Club. Hawaii Five-O just keeps looking better and better. No doubt it will be renewed in a hurry.

      Don’t watch this show but will watch this one episode for sure! He is and will always be the original
      “FREDDY”!

        My response is an agreement to Marcy’s. I will definitely watch this episode, even though I’ve never watched the show. Because of Robert Englund’s films, he will always be known as the King of Horror.

    I still remember his role on V in the 1980s — such a sweet character!!
